May 1st Start Date!

Gabby Davis

Recommended Posts

I've been slowly realizing that I am becoming less interested in the foods / beverages I've been eating and noticing how and when I make unhealthy decisions. So, I've already started making small changes to my diet, routines, choices and behaviors. 

I am 32, love my career yet it can be quite exhausting and stressful at times, have three children (13y, 11y, 6y), and a husband. None of my family are interested in making the changes I intend to make, so I am preparing myself a bit more slowly. My husband typically cooks (and loves large portion sizes, breaded foods, pasta, meat and potatoes kinda guy) and he home-brews. We are / and for me, were avid craft beer drinkers. I have actually been cutting back slowly and loving the change! In addition, more important than food and beer ever was, I am obsessed with chocolate. I could make a meal out of chocolate some days! In the last week I haven't even ate a square of the dark chocolate I typically would consume three times a day (3 squares of dark chocolate). Now mind you, I always got the "Gabby - it's okay to eat dark chocolate - that stuff is good for you" - when I would say how I thought it was probably time to cut back on this habit of mine. 

The hardest adjustment I think will be truly eating good food. I don't particularly enjoy cooking and always let my husband do that (we split the chores, and that is just one he took on). I also don't particularly like food in general. I don't eat a lot, and what I do eat isn't what I'd call healthy. So, making healthier choices truly is important to me.

So, while I'm excited to go on the Whole30 plan starting May 1st - I'm going to ease my way into this so that I can become more comfortable cooking for myself (like I said, he's not particularly interested in eating this way, yet... I hope that I can also work on positively impacting his life choices through my healthier eating habits), and also educating myself on this plan and preparing in advance. 

So ready!

You can do this!

I hear you on the chocolate.   Yesterday I was given a tin of Quality Street Chocolates and fresh dates from Dubai.  The dates will be fine.....but I have hidden the chocolates away so hubby doesn't get into them and then I will be tempted.
